    The best place to watch the beautifull sunset. A little bit crowded at the evening but everyone will find some place to make a most beautifull photos.

    Amazing small beach. Clear water and fantastic snorkeling at shore with so many different fishes. I went to several beaches in Phuket (Kata, Kata Noi, Karon, Patong, Nai Harn) and this is clearly my favorite for swimming and snorkeling.

    Our driver informed that Rawai is where the locals come for leisure and fishing and where tourists come to hire longtail boats for excursions to the any of the many islands. He identified some locals as being from the nearby Sea Gypsy Village, we declined the suggestion that we should visit the fish market there. Interestingly, there were none of the tourist trappings that are very evident on other beaches, Rawai is really a locals' work area, but also an area where there are many hotels of various star rating, restaurants, cafes, food stands and bars. Worth visiting to see a small part of how the locals live.

    A bit overwhelming at first even though we chose a good time in early evening. Apparently lunch time is very busy.
    So you choose and buy your own seafood and take it across the road where a restaurant will give you a menu from which you choose how you want the fish,crab,razor clams, prawns or whatever you have bought should be cooked.
    Choose at least two things or do it in relays one at a time. Very affordable compared to Western style or city sea food restaurants.

    One of the rare snorkeling spots with a reef close to beach.
    But the restaurant has been abandoned and they are building a resort there now 😭.
    Parking for cars has been fenced off.
    You see mostly Russian residents and tourists. Especially on weekends 🤔, many walking on the corals and some even fishing with spear guns.
    In high season, the hydro foil surfers ruin it for snorkeling and diving.
    It's crazy to think the authorities don't protect this at all, given it's one of the only popular places on Phuket snorkeling was possible. Overtourism...

    We went as a group of friends (4 ppl) for a one day trip by sailing catamaran. The whole trip was worth the money. Although not much activity to do on the island, but if you like a very private beach with nice blue sea and white sand. You'd love this island as much as we do!

    Basic rooms , but price is excellent, lovely views [at high tide]. Very nice ambience with a real Thailand feel, compared to so much "concrete and tile" at so many other places. Excellent quality [not typical] Live music on Friday nights by a talented musician that we enjoyed so much we visited again two more times even though we were no longer staying there.

    This is a great little beach. The water is safe for all ages and is nice and quiet for Phuket beaches. There is fruit sellers on the beach and its a good spot just to chilland unwind.

    Thank You for all the arrangements for Phuket Golf Leisure. We played seven days and Red Mountain became our favorite golf course, it was amazing place in all scale.
    Phuket Golf Leisure booked all the tee times to us. We wanted to play in the morning and tee times were perfectly booked. During our trip we made some changes, and that worked well also. All the transportations from hotel to Club and back were really good and in time. Special thanks to Alissa and John, You made our trip memorable!
